The “To do the upgrade, edit your /etc/apt/sources.list, …"-game is over. Finally!
Michael Vogt worked very hard to make upgrading to a new release the overall pleasurable experience that Ubuntu in general is. Let’s have a look how it works.
1. Run gksu “update-manager -d” and type in your password afterwards.
5. See what it presents you with. The fancy thing about Michael’s tool is: it will resolve conflicts on its own, respect your choices about software and make sure you benefit of all the transitions that happened behind the scenes.
Thank you Michael for working on this - it will make life much easier.
If you happen to be in Paris - be sure to get him a beer. :-)
